With summer right around the bend, I cant help but think of one the great shows of July that rises like a big sweet jellybean balloon above the rest.JFK 7/7/89 is one of the sweetest!I can still smell the soft pretzels and BROAD STREET HEAT.

I just remember this hose on the side trying to spraying us JFKites and it evaporating before it even reached 2 rows in. Didn't really care though because of the LIQUID intake before the show. Glad I didn't see the porta-potty thing though, ick.

I remember hearing from friends who went to this show how great it was, as I'd opted to see The Who @ RFK here in DC. While they're two different bands & certainly two different scenes, I can't say I'd have gone to JKF instead of RFK.

That was one HOT f'n summer though, wasn't it?

It was hotter than a preachers dick in a whore's ass.

Great show, great venue, fun tour! Sure wish I could do it all over again....

Maybe you should ask the irreverend Jimmy Swaggart. This holy roller has been caught in a Louisiana ho house once and later arrested with a street walker in his car. The dirty old man was naked from the waist down; when he was arrested by the state police in southern California...

Wow, you picked the Who over the Dead? Was this the year they reuinited for like the second or third time after they said they were done? I think this might have been the year I saw them in Boulder. Good show, they played Tommy in it's entirity ( I think, if not then most of it ), but man was the crowd old and LAME. Didn't have any smoke so tried circling the perimeter looking. Ok, so no one had any BUT the looks I got? At a F'n Who concert? Guess I should asked where I could score a latte and some geritol.
